Editor's Note: We know promotional water bottles are really just meant to be drunk from. But just for fun, our Creative Agency came up with some crafty projects that transform water bottles into other things. Consider these projects as inspiration for team-builidng exercises with your staff!

Plenty of studies have shown the benefits of indoor plants.

They help clean the air. They brighten people's moods. And they sure do make an office seem more inviting.

Items related to cubicle gardening (and conventional gardening) make great promotional giveaways. Help plant the seeds of change, encourage a message or growth, promote an environmental initiative or simply show appreciation to customers or employees with a planter, seed growing kit or pretty vase.

Many of us at Staples Promotional Products have cubicle gardens. Some are small. Some are bigger. Some consist of non-traditional flowers.

If you don't already have a cubicle garden, it's easy to get started. 

5 Promotional Products for Your Cubicle Garden

Turn a water bottle into a vase.

The Mirage Top Tritan is perfect for this, as the photos above prove.

Repurpose a coaster.

Always keep a coaster underneath your water bottle vase or planter to catch stray water droplets.

Plant herb or flower seeds.

Seed growing kits are popular giveaways in spring and summer. Instead of taking them home, use your windowsill if you have one.

Transplant your seedlings into a flower pot or pail.

Your flowers and herbs will need room to grow - logoed pots and buckets are great for this.

"Plant" a USB flower hub.

Hey, even people with black thumbs should be able to enjoy flowers at the office.
